Another fair 94 show. Not as good as the night prior, but mostly on account of song selection- otherwise, most of this show is well-played and it's a fine sounding AUD recording. Nice Half-Step opener, last one played 12 shows prior on 6/25. Don't love this late-era arrangement of It's Over Now, but I do enjoy the acoustic Bobby tunes. After this sweet-sounding and penultimate version of The Roses (last played 29 shows prior on 3/28- final version 76 shows later on 6/23) comes acoustic Bobby on El Paso. Phil sounds good on it, Vince too. It's followed by a quick turn into Loose Lucy. Yeaaaahhh, Jerry! Unfortunately the set petered out from here to its end: If The Shoe Fits, Easy Answers->Don't Ease. Yikes.
This show's better than some of the naysayers and two-star reviewers. I'm with northbrkdeadhead (from the other stream review board), "are you from mars?" Hah! This is definitely far from a rushed show, as some of the 87 shows - albeit very good - I thought in fact were. This is a very paced and mellow show, especially the second set, but it's actually rather engaged and engaging. Samson set two opener is well-executed, better even than I would have thought. Next comes Way To Go Home. You might have qualms about the song, but it's also well-played. Next comes an 18 minute Eyes, and it's about as far from rushed as you can get. It segues into Eternity, another slower tune, but it works. Then He's Gone->30 minute Drums/Space set->Days Between. So that makes for four slower - but not sluggish - songs in a row. He's Gone and Days Btwn are beautifully played. Some lyrical slips in Days Btwn, but at this point I'd honestly say that this late-era Jerry ballad was worth the price of admission, alone. This one's 13 minutes, as haunting and chilling a moment from any era, perhaps more so. Out of it comes a standard - but strong - Stones->NFA closer and Liberty encore. "Summer flies and August dies and the world grows dark and mean...." The approaching season would, of course, be his last fall.

A frustrating example of what was passing for routine by this late date.
Subject: Great pull of a solid late era show
